Wellfleet Residents Protest New Police Officer

police carWELLFLEET – Some residents in Wellfleet are becoming concerned about police policies that they say are not acceptable.

Sharyn Lindsay is a resident who voiced her thoughts on the situation at a meeting of the Wellfleet Board of Selectmen Tuesday night.

She is calling for a new citizen’s review board to be formed to monitor police activity.

Lindsay says there is one officer in particular who she believes is heavy-handed toward the town’s younger residents.

She is in the process of collecting 500 signatures on a petition calling for the officer’s firing, and she plans to present the petition to Police Chief Ronald Fisette when it is complete.
